Art is fair and Art is fine A holy elevation from the lowly swine A thing of beauty in the grand design Aaaa... who needs it? Art is Man's redeeming grace Illuminates and educates the human race It's too expensive and it takes up space Aaaa... who needs it? Art is never understood Especially when it's good It gives us chills Art speaks to us from each distant land Reminding us of our telephone bills Art is noble and refined The loftiest endeavor of the human mind So paint a picture of my fat behind Aaaa... who needs it? Art is "Phantom" and "Les Miz" I don't know much about it but I know what it is It ain't a crucifix submerged in whiz Aaaa... who needs it? Art is never what it seems It drives us to extremes It makes us think Art shows how lovely are lives can be Reminding us that our real lives stink Art is ageless and sublime A waste of otherwise productive time It leads to Yoga, Hacky Sack and Mime Who needs it? Who needs it? Who needs it? Who needs it? Who needs Art? Who needs Art? Who needs Art? When you're renewing American civilization Art is lewd and Art is vile — Wait! I'd like to say a word in Art's defense Art doesn't make a lot of sense And so it's easy to ignore And, furthermore It helps us forget about money and war It helps us remember what we're living for... Right! Money and war! Artists are vain, corrupt and fat They spend our taxes "finishing the hat" They paint us pretty pictures... Well, we've got politicians to do that Who needs it, who needs it, who needs it, who needs it? Who needs Art? Who needs Art? Who needs Art? Who needs Art? When you're renewing American civilization By ridding the nation of edification?
